Just Like Christmas

Christmas Playlist Low

I love Christmas albums. Maybe that seems cheesy, and surely lots of holiday music is, but there are so many classic and under-the-radar xmas albums with really delightful and solid interpretations of traditional songs (and some new ones). Case in point, Low’s Christmas. Aside from the joyfully unhinged Disco Noel, which we have owned on vinyl (x2) and cassette and which includes instructions for dancing the hustle, it’s probably my favorite. It just slays. I started there for this playlist and added in some more upbeat and festive tracks too. It’s meant to be perfect for decorating a tree, drinking a hot toddy, wrapping presents, or sitting in LA traffic to get to multiple family Christmases (what we usually do). Hope you enjoy. Merry merry xx.
